Necessary works will be carried out in our other villages as soon as possible..."
As it will be prepared, on 21 August 2023, a large fire broke out in the pine area between the villages of Çepelli and Büyük Müsellim, and then spread to a wide area, causing a large forest area to be burnt down, and damaging some herds of animals and houses in the settlements of Büyük Müsellim, Susurköy, Kozlardere and Narlıköy. After the fire, four villages were declared as disaster areas.
